“J Elle iterates lusty ambitions and deep infatuation with smooth, melodic swagger.”The Line Of Best Fit
After making waves this Autumn with her latest single ‘Take Me Away’ and a support slot on Jack Maynard’s sold out #HEADLINES tour, rising R&B artist J Elle expertly closes off the year with the release of her brand new EP ‘Between The Lines’.
Including the highly acclaimed tropical-tinged single ‘Take Me Away’, the EP contains 5 brand new songs, bringing back an old school alt-R&B vibe. The EP’s lead single is ‘On My Way.’
Speaking of the EP J Elle said: “My inspiration was to portray ‘happiness with a touch of nostalgia’. ‘Between The Lines’ reflects a whole different stage of my life. It’s a much happier sound than my previous EP and I think that resonates the most with me because it’s portraying how I’m actually feeling right now.”
Entirely self-written, J Elle aims for ‘Between The Lines’ to be “easily relatable” and listeners are encouraged to “find their own meanings to each song” by relating the songs to their own personal experiences..
Also included on the EP is ‘Don’t Ring My Phone’ which features a collaboration with UK R&B heavyweight Courtney Bennett.
“The theme of the EP is generally around love and my experience of love in the past and present, not just with men but with myself. I want young girls to gauge that you can have heartbreak, but it is possible to find true love, if that’s what you’re looking for. Being independent is a huge self love goal and is one of the many amazing things women can do without a man and I think that’s shown the most in ‘Don’t Ring My Phone’”.
The London based singer songwriter made her debut in 2017, with the self-penned 5 track ‘Phases’ EP released last December. With an R&B sound laced with irresistible pop sensibilities, J Elle is already making waves having garnered support from the likes of The Line Of Best Fit, Highsnobriety, New Wave District and ASBO Magazine.
J Elle’s journey in music began when she was just 9 years old. Previously more focussed on football, she had been playing for Arsenal Girls before she started singing. Influenced by her brother who was strongly into R&B, J Elle started making music at the age of 16 – supported by her school which offered many opportunities for making and performing music – allowing her passion to grow into what is now her profession.
